Dance of Death

Dance of Death

A Poem by AprilRN1210
"

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge" -Einstein

"






“If there are people you haven’t forgiven, you’re not going to really awaken. You have to let go.”


-Eckhart Tolle



















Fuzzy thoughts


ought


to be harmless


    naught even


but, a misty mind


rains treason


demons draining


what I believed in.


 


 


Baggage binds


truths defined


weakening beacons


behind blurred lines.


 


 


“Knowing” isn’t showing


which way the wind blows


so trust must guide


around the lies


keeping cognition afloat.



 


Frustration raging


beneath my breaths


following faith’s clichés


wallowing in hollowness


of today’s malaise


ache of awakening


a dance of death.

No one should be permitted to rent space in your head, April. In order to move on, we must forgive....which does not mean we have to have a relationship with the person who hurt us to begin with. Well written. Lydi**

Thank you Lydia :)
This almost feels like a dream that leads to endless confusion and unmistakable wonder as you wake and think to yourself... What the hell?
Then you get up and start your day with it in your thoughts but for a fleeting moment

Enjoyed this.

this reminds me of that battle some of us have with religion---at least the organized kind...lots of blurred lines...like a poem that just can't be translated clearly.
i experienced this...and love to dance.
